Supply Chain Management Systems Transformation Drivers

Supply Chain Management Systems Transformation Drivers are some signs your company needs to replace the systems and transform the processes. From imagery of the dark cavernous warehouses, and smoke belching trucks shipping goods cross country, Supply Chain Management has come a long way, thanks to technological advances, and business model innovations. Manufacturers the world over are placing a significant emphasis on supply chain management process optimization and system re-architecture to not be left behind in the race to most efficient and effective back end.

Without further ado, here are the Supply Chain Management Systems Transformation Drivers

  1. Supply chain is still mostly a manual process and the few systems that support supply chain processes are disjointed, silo’ed and complex.
  2. An end to end, closed loop automation of supply chain is still a distant dream
  3. Supply chain teams need to log into multiple systems to accomplish basic tasks of managing the supply chain
  4. Supply chain related decisions are made by hunch and gutfeel rather than timely and actionable data
  5. Cost of managing the supply function is spiraling out of control
  6. The concepts and benefits of RFID, JIT, RPA (robotic process automation) are not easy to integrate and harness
  7. The Supply chain systems are replete with non-standard processes and ad hoc reporting
  8. Multiple and point solutions galore for various supply chain functions.
  9. Convoluted supply chain processes and lack of data analytics make analysis and measurement of effectiveness difficult, and visibility into the flow of goods/raw materials is impossible
  10. Various facets of supply chain management – warehousing, 3rd party logistics, transportation, sales order management etc – are not synergistic and at times work in opposition rather than in conjunction
  11. Effort and cost of Supply chain systems maintenance is spiraling out of control
  12. Spreadsheet and Access databases galore in every nook and corner of supply chain functions

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
